Mid-term Reflection

This class is very different from any other English class I’ve ever taken because there is very little instruction and help for each assignment. This gives me an opportunity to be more creative in my assignments as there is less guidelines to follow. When I am writing, I feel as if I have a larger audience because I am posting my final product online as a blog post, which has the potential to reach a larger audience compared to handing in a hard copy of an essay to my professors. This has led me to broaden my horizons to relate to a larger, more diverse audience, instead of just a room of my classmates and professor. As a writer, I believe I have a very strong vocabulary. Often while writing, I will get off task and not be completely focused on answering the prompt throughout my piece, adding in unnecessary sentences that I could do without.

I think implementing everything stated above will bring in higher quality work...

Since I am not quit use to having the ability to choose what my subject of a project may be, it is hard sometimes to make a decision on what to write about. Although it has made me realize that research is important before the writing process can be done. Having done the three project, I have discovered that a lot of information can be obtained specifically and exclusively through either primary or secondary research. The Reading Summary has sharpened my analysis skills, the Annotated Bibliography has improved my research skills, and the Built Environment Description helped me applied what I saw in reality on to paper more clearly and distinctly. I plan on using what I’ve learn form these first projects and applying them to future projects. As I continue to attend class and work on the projects, I have come to see that all the students’ projects in the class are slowly becoming an archive of the built environment. I believe my peers and the audience outside of this class are viewing my post in hopes of getting a better understanding of the built environment under discussion. Enabling the students to be able to perform their...
